Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. MoD Boscombe Down (IATA: N/A, ICAO: EGDM) is an aircraft testing site located at Idmiston, south of Amesbury, in Wiltshire, England. It is run and managed by QinetiQ, the company created as part of the break up of the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency in 2001 by the UK Ministry of Defence. It is the home of the Empire Test Pilots' School. Aircraft testing at the airfield started when the Aeroplane and Armament Experimental Establishment (A&AEE) moved from RAF Martlesham Heath in August 1939, as World War II hostilities commenced, when the airfield was the RAF Station Boscombe Down.The site was formerly known as RAF Boscombe Down and since 1939 has evaluated aircraft for the British armed forces.show more
